The Supreme Court is enabling nationally enforcement of a new Trump government rule that prevents many Central American immigrants from seeking asylum from the USA.
The justices’ order late Wednesday briefly undoes a lower-court judgment that had blocked the new asylum coverage in certain nations along the southern boundary. The policy is supposed to deny asylum to anyone who moves through the other country on the road into the U.S. without needing protection there.
The majority of people crossing the southern boundary are Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence. They’re mainly ineligible under the rule.
Sotomayor states the principle upends”longstanding practices seeing refugees who seek refuge from persecution.”
